"Quick one to say thanks again for a great weekend. I've just got home and emptied my rucksack and subjected Richard to an hour-long show and tell session! He's made all the right noises about my needle, spoon, bark container and basket! I had a fabulous time. Hope you have a quieter week"

"I was lucky enough to receive a recommendation for Woodland Survival Crafts from a friend who had done a number of courses with Dave. I was looking to update my own personal skills and undertake a training course to help develop the bushcraft activity sessions I deliver through my activity business. The Bushcraft for Practitioners course fit the bill perfectly and when it came round to the start I’d gotten another 5 of my staff on board too.
The site was wonderful, a wealth of natural resources, beauty and isolation. Just enough home comforts to make the stay more appealing to the less experienced and wild enough to satisfy the seasoned wild-camper. The course content was as varied as it was in-depth. All the course topics were covered thoroughly and enjoyably, the level of practical activity was maintained very high throughout. The resources and reading materials made available to us were more than adequate. The highlights for most were the tree identification walk in the dark and, of course, the fact that every member of the course had lit fire with a bow drill by day 2.
On a personal note, Dave has a patient and relaxed attitude and his passion for the outdoors was clearly visible in his teaching and the way he talked about the woods and his history. His level of skill and knowledge can only be described as expert and he was a pleasure to learn from. Dave was also ably assisted by Mike, Howard and Ewan, who, like Dave, were knowledgeable and great company. We were not the shyest of groups out there but they gave as good as they got! I would have no hesitation in recommending Woodland Survival Crafts to any individual or company. All 6 of us immensely enjoyed our time in Spring Wood and I for one have already started looking into other courses with Dave. I shall be buying the friend who made the initial recommendation a beer. Many thanks."
